Five Spice Sloppy Joe

Five Spice Sloppy Joe

This sloppy joe melds the classic flavors of Chinese cuisine with the casual presentation of a sloppy joe.

I made this dish with ground chicken and pork but it could just as easily be made with ground beef or ground chicken alone.

I suggest serving this topped with Simple Sesame Slaw


  • 1 tbs canola oil
  • 2 yellow onions, diced
  • 1 cup celery,chopped
  • 3 tbs sambal oelek
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbs ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup lime juice


  1. Sauté chicken and pork until browned
  2. Add onions, celery and sauté until onions are translucent (5-7 minutes)
  3. stir in garlic, sambal and ginger
  4. Add hoisin sauce and tomatoes
  5. Stew for 20 minutes
  6. just before serving, mix in lime juice
  7. Serve on bun and top with slaw
